How to organise your cables with LEGO minifigures

We got emailed a genius little discovery by Sugru-er Andreas from Germany... and it blew our minds :) And we need to share it.

Who knew?! Sugru Mouldable Glue + LEGO minifigures are the perfect way to keep your cables organised and AWESOME! As Sugru bonds to most materials, it means you can attach your minifigs anywhere you want — around your home, at your desk, in the car. Yep, just let that sink in…

Kit

  • LEGO minifigures
  • 1 single-use pack of Sugru (enough to attach 4 minifigures)

Step 1

minifigure and sugru held next to each other

Take 1/4 of a single-use pack of Sugru and knead it for a few seconds.

Then roll the Sugru into a little sausage.

Step 2

Press the Sugru sausage on to the back of the minifigure.

Step 3

TOP TIP: To keep the arms stuck in the perfect position to hold your cables, make sure the Sugru is pressed onto the sides and the back of the arms to hold them in place.

Step 4

Press the minifigure (Sugru first!) onto the surface where you want it.

Step 5

To ensure a strong bond, press down on the Sugru edges and make sure there are no gaps between the Sugru and the surface.

Step 6

Now you just need to decide where to put yours...
